Pretty Portioning


I love ice cream. I’m not ashamed to admit it. It’s just so delicious offering a flavor for every mood.

However, have you ever looked at what a serving size is…1/2 cup for 150 calories?!?!?? I know the First Lady Michele Obama has worked with correcting serving size, but that still doesn’t prevent me from simply scooping my ice cream to enjoy.

The bowl on the left is the bowl I use to use. Now, I wouldn’t fill it, but do you know how small a 1/2 cup serving looks in that bowl? Boo!

A very smart friend of mine had told me how she enjoys pudding in her wine glasses since she couldn’t enjoy wine at night with her husband working 2nd shift.

I took her brilliant ideation heart and have made my white wine glasses my ice cream bowls:-)


Doesn’t that look so much more appetizing, pretty, and fulfilling than a 1/8 full bowl?:-)

I believe that you shouldn’t deny yourself treats that you like. How on Earth could I go through life without having ice cream? No fun! I don’t want to tell my kids no no no no all the time. I want to be able to show them that things in moderation, it’s ok:-). Serving it in something fun is a great way to control portion sizing and get your special treat!

Remember…They Will Love Your Effort<3

Hi! My name is Dominique and I’m lucky enough to be the wife to my True Love and mother to a little girl and a little boy. I grew up in the Midwest but have loved living in NC, our new home.

I’m actually an Industrial Engineer by schooling, but am now a domestic engineer(Stay-at-home-Mom) and feel very blessed to have this job.

I have always loved the challenge in making the most of things…whether it’s figuring out that a filing cabinet , a $10 piece of countertop and a few scraps of wood can be turned into a desk, that a curtain sheer, some ribbon, and a square piece of fabric can be transformed into an Elsa-like dress, or how to provide an interesting lunch for my little girl who is in a peanut free classroom. I love to figure things out and to create.

I hope you enjoy reading my posts. I hope that my posts will inspire you to create. I hope that with my posts you will see that They Will Love Your Effort, whether things turn our perfect or not;-)
